Silent Night

All is Calm

A silent night in the Hitty cupboard.

Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht,
Alles schläft; einsam wacht
Nur das traute hochheilige Paar.
Holder Knabe im lockigen Haar,
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!
Schlaf in himmlischer Ruh!

We really enjoy listening to the the wonderful Men’s Choir from Vancouver, Chor Leoni. Click here for the version from their album Star of Wonder)

One of the members of this choir is the great X 6 nephew of the priest Joseph Mohr, who asked his friend Franz Xaver Gruber to set his poem to music for a Christmas service two hundred years ago this Christmas Eve.
